Last month we heard that George Hotz’s self driving car platform Comma.ai had received an investment from Andreesen Horowitz which has valued the company at $20 million.
Now Andreesen Horowitz have revealed that they have invested $3.1 million in the Comma.ai platform and the self driving car.
Today we are announcing that a16z is leading a $3.1M investment in George’s company, Comma.ai. This investment will help them continue to build their team (they’re hiring), and bring their technology to market. Expect more announcements from Comma in the next few months. We are very excited to support George and his team on this ambitious project.
George Hotz is well known for jailbreaking the iPhone and also Sony’s PlayStation and his new car technology looks impressive from the video we saw previously.
Many companies are working on self driving car technology, it will be interesting to see how the Comma.Ai platform is developed.
